Beyonce Won Four Grammys Before The Show Even Started
The superstar picked up Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)" and Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for her rendition of Etta James classic "At Last", which she performed for the "Cadillac Records" soundtrack.
She also sang her version of the R&B standard as Barack Obama and Michelle Obama danced together as U.S. President and First Lady at an inauguration gala last year.
Her "Single Ladies" track also earned her Best R&B Song honors and her hit "I Am... Sasha Fierce" was named the 2010 Best Contemporary R&B Album.
Black Eyed Peas claimed three prizes before the big show: Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals ("I Gotta Feeling"), Best Pop Vocal Album ("The E.N.D.") and Best Short Form Music Video ("Boom Boom Pow").
The San Francisco Symphony's classical hit "Mahler: Symphony No. 8; Adagio From Symphony No. 10" was also a pre-ceremony triple winner, claiming the Best Choral Performance, Best Classical Album and Best Engineered Album honors.
Double winners prior to the show included Taylor Swift, Kings of Leon, Maxwell, Jay-Z, Jason Mraz and Lady Gaga.
